Beautiful!! I've GOT to start scheduling myself a regular card making night. I've got all these supplies and hardly ever take the time to use them anymore.

Love the paper for the card!
You are so much better at giving tutorials than I am!
Someone asked me about a card once and I just couldn't explain it in a clear and simple way...
You are great at that! Ü

Very cute as usual. Thanks for sharing all your ideas. Those uncreative people (like me) need the inspiration!
Blessings,

Your talent always amazes me! I think you could definitely have your own stationery line, and they would sell like crazy!

I love your tutorials. I made the card with the sand and water scene using sandpaper and took it to show & tell at my woman's club yesterday. I am going to enter it into a contest later in the fall.

You make that look so easy! LOL I can make them with no problem as long as someone says do ABC 123... LOL But to sit and have to THINK of an idea. Nope! LOL That's why I appreciate people like you so much! THANKS for the "how to" - that was great!

I love your card projects, they are such an inspiration, and I have so much fun doing them. I so much more prefer homemade cards now then store bought.

Is there a punch available for making that decorative circle ? I can't imagine cutting that with decorative scissors. I bought lots of scrapbooking and rubberstamping supplies about 5 yrs. ago, maybe longer and I just didn't have the talent for getting pages done, although I bought books and magazines with ideas. My photos didn't never match anything like the pictures in the book, so I gave a lot of supplies away. Maybe I should try again.

Post the designer's name of the cardstock that you are using. It would help people look for that specific cardstock or something in that designer's lines. I hope you understand what I'm trying to convey to you. It's been so long, I can't remember some of the cardstock designers.

Anonymous,
I have several circle punches and an oval, but for the tiny oval on this particular card, I used decorative scissors.

Betty,
I understand what you are asking, but I have several reasons for not posting the supply companies. The main one is a time issue and also I want everyone to try using any kind of paper that they like.
